Serbia international defender Branislav Ivanovic is reportedly on his way out of Chelsea next month, according to Super Deporte.

The Premier League side, who narrowly defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon to record 11 successive top-flight victories, are ready to offload the ageing right-back during the forthcoming January transfer window.

The 32-year-old, who has 92 international caps for his country, has made 13 appearances in all competitions for The Blues so far this season.

Ivanovic, who arrived at Stamford Bridge from Lokomotiv Moscow back in January 2008, is out of contract come the end of the current 2016-17 campaign.

With manager Antonio Conte ready to allow the Serbian star to leave the Bridge in the New Year, considering his success switch to three at the back, the report suggests that La Liga outfit Valencia are ready to lure the defender to the Spanish top-flight.

Ivanovic has scored 33 goals in 374 games for Chelsea overall.
